3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Bull & Bush. Black in color with a light brown head. Aroma is licorice, roast, smoke, and sweet dark fruits. A bit of molasses, coffee, and some bitter chocolate. Nice sweetness to the flavor. Burnt sugar, molasses, licorice, and dark fruit. Fairly heavy on the roast, some coffee, ash, and a touch of smoke. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Pour is deep brown with a small cream head and good lacing. Big roast, coffee, light chocolate, a hint of vanilla, bread, and caramel in the aroma. Taste is roasty, chocolatey, somewhat nutty, biscuit, and grassy. Medium mouthfeel with soft carbonation. No frills easy drinking stout, but really nothing to get excited about.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brownish black with tan head, aroma has notes of coffee, dark fruit, roast, slight touch of cocoa powder, some slight grassy hops in there as well. Taste is fairly straight forward, with slightly watery notes of toffee, dark fruit, roast, some coffee, cocoa, finishing with a very dry slightly bitter finish. Pretty good stuff, wish it was a bit more full flavored.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ brewpub. Dark black appearance with a creamy brown head that dissipates pretty quickly. Dark roasty, slightly burnt malts in the nose. Quite roasty chocolate malty flavor. The roastiness sticks around in the finish and aftertaste. Easy drinking and enjoyable stout.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2013 On tap @ the brewpub. Pretty dark in color with a dark beige head. Smells like dark roasted malts and a little bittersweet dark chocolate. Texture is bright and bubbly, clean and sweet finishing, with a medium-full body on a surprisingly full flavor. Tasted much like the nose, with roast malt coming through on the palate as well as dark chocolate. End was slightly bitter and roasty, like any good stout. Slightly chocolaty too. And this is a good stout.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown to black with a thin off-white head. Has a nice chocolate and roasted aroma. The body is rich and thick and flavor is a bit smokey. This is delicious and chocolately. A good brewpub stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nicely balanced stout, with an interesting mixture of chocolate sweetness, roasted malt character, and a light bit of tartness - sweet up front, followed by a medium dry middle and finish - a touch of diacetyl, but the bitterness and tartness keep it fairly subdued, keeping it just present enough to make this stout taste "very british" - decent.
